Her work is a fusion between painting and photography. She experiments a lot with old cameras and uses mostly aged films. She is a camera collector and has various cameras from the 60s onwards.
Her idea is to combine old techniques of photography and develop them in a contemporary way; using all mediums available today. She finds interesting using photography as her stepping stone and then used mixed media creating something original.
She sees her images as an experience, hoping to create a "place" that never existed as long lasting memory of this imaginary world. Alkistis Ven is now based between London, New York and Athens; and works on several projects.
